Money Makes Music Editor: There’s no coincidence Humboldt’s luthiers are thriving (“Making Wood Sing,” Feb. 7). Music for generations has been indelibly integrated in Arcata School District’s curriculum. Thanks to Arcata’s voters and the passage of the District’s revenue measures, music and art programs are here to stay and getting stronger. Without a child’s appreciation and understanding of music and art, there would be no stories about luthiers in Humboldt County — what an un-wonderful world that would be. Because voters cared, our schools will be able to add teachers and aides to ensure that our class sizes stay small and get smaller. Our schools are able to keep at full strength their music, art and dance programs. Arcata School District fosters the appreciation of music with its award-winning music programs. We’ll be able to upgrade our classrooms including the completion of our Sunny Brae Middle School science and library complex, which will be available for our music and art programs. We’re even starting a fully accredited top-notch preschool this fall at our el-
ementary school campus that will provide children a seamless integration into kindergarten. Preschoolers will get an even earlier appreciation of music and art. For parents looking for schools for their kindergarteners, check us out. Our schools have always been the premier schools in Humboldt County. Thanks to Arcata voters, we expect to excel even further with smaller classrooms, more aides and lots of music and art. A well-run and well-funded public school is one that provides an equal opportunity to every child regardless of economic, social or cultural background. A good community is one that supports the enrichment of their public schools. Feel proud, Arcata. Keep the luthiers coming. Jeffrey Schwartz, Arcata
Sorry, old man Editor: Thanks to Bob Doran for his feature article on Humboldt County’s luthiers. I’ve been proud of these guys for years. They are well-known internationally, and it’s good to see them get some recognition on their home turf. As the owner of a Eureka music store from 1976-1999, I’ve known Mark Platin, Steve Helgeson, Phil Crump and Ken Lawrence for a long time and have followed their careers closely. I’ve relied on their expertise over the years for difficult repairs
on fine instruments and referred many customers to them as well. Unfortunately for us but not for them, as their skills progressed and their reputations grew, they became more reluctant to repair other people’s instruments, preferring instead to build their own. It reminds me of the following story: Some years ago, Hartley Peavey of Peavey Electronics was in secret negotiations to buy the Gibson Guitar Company, but he broke it off and committed himself to building his own brand, saying, “It’s a lot more fun to make a new baby than to resuscitate an old man.” Rus Krause, Arcata
Picking on pickers Editor: With yet another cartoon picking on trash pickers who frequent the alleys of Eureka, I can’t help but wonder if Mr. Mielke has a bit of an obsession about his trash (“Recycling Eureka Style,” Feb. 7).
Cartoon by joel mielke
His premise: Eureka residents put out trash which is then picked by those who take “things of value” from the bins, followed by the Recology pick, resulting in a bill for services. It is positively Karl Rovian continued on next page

in its perverse presentation of information. As depicted, the sequence sways the viewer into thinking hapless pickers are absconding with trash of “value” while residents are stuck with a bill. A few points of clarification: Recology bills for trash services regardless of picked or non-picked bin status. Recology increases fees if a resident’s trash exceeds a limit; that means pickers are actually diminishing a resident’s volume and perhaps saving money for the bill payer. Trash is trash. If you put it in the bin, it does not have any value to you. If it has value to you, it isn’t trash. Monitoring your trash or believing it has value commences a downward spiral — can you say “hoarder”? Does the fact that folks must resort to trash picking make you wonder about the state of our safety net and the growing inequality in America? Rather than focus on who is touching “his” trash, perhaps Mr. Mielke could take aim at those who created the tough times and conditions touching those who resort to picking through garbage.

Editor: I moved to Caspar in 1985. My house was across the street from the Caspar (“R.I.P. Caspar Inn,” Feb. 7). When the wind was right, I could hear the music rockin’ out across the night. I could walk to the Caspar, the neon shimmering through the fog as my beacon — and I must admit, more than a few times, I crawled back home. Peter Lit owned the Caspar Inn then. He brought in some of the best in blues and rock. Ten years later, I bought the Riverwood Inn. The Caspar and the Riverwood could be roadhouse sisters. Caspar’s rooms are upstairs, the Riverwood’s are downstairs. No TV or phones in the rooms. Our web page warns that the rooms are noisy till closing time and on a band night, forget it. No sleep till the fat lady quits singing. When I bought the Riverwood Inn, the Caspar was my model to follow. Music, booze, rooms, food. Ah, but the front porch of the Caspar was a fragrant place. The Riverwood has a
front porch, too. I’m sorry to see the Caspar Inn close, and I hope it’s not forever. It has closed and opened before. So has the Riverwood. Keeping an old building up and running is a lot of work. The sound of a hammer has never stopped since I bought it. It’s a lot of work to keep a music venue up and running, too. Good bands aren’t cheap. It’s important to keep good live music venues going or the music will stop. Lots of bands will miss the Caspar. So, if you get nostalgic and want a place that can remind you, just a little, of the Caspar Inn, come on down to my place. We have Maker’s Mark, too. Loreen Eliason, Phillipsville
To Capture the Fleeting If you were a bird, you would be a pileated woodpecker: sharp and striking, red feathers glowing, poking in the rotten wood for bugs. If you were a snake, you would be a rubber boa: beautiful and harmless, docile in my hands. If you were mine, I would love you more than dragonflies love summer. But it is not so. You are a distant mountain, shrouded in mist. You are a wild ocean, never crossed. You are another galaxy, worlds away from mine. You will never be tamed. — Amy Fontaine

ork slides out of the pool, barks sharply and sails across his pen on all four flippers. The feisty northern fur seal pup bares sharp teeth and hisses at a camera — and the humans standing outside his pen. “He’s got a tremendous amount of attitude,” says Dennis Wood, founder of the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center in Crescent City. Attitude is a good thing. Seals like Mork are susceptible to building relationships with humans. That’s not a handy trait when the rehabilitated seals are released back into the wild. Northern fur seals are a protected species, hunted to the brink of extinction about a century ago. Mork was picked up Dec. 18 at a beach north of Crescent City. He had a sticky, tarry substance on his fur, which might have caused his mother to abandon him. He needed a bath and, weighing only 16 pounds, he needed some calories, says Wood, a local veterinarian. Wood and the center’s all-volunteer staff
cared for and fed Mork. Within six weeks, the pup’s weight doubled. Now he’s ready to be released at the beach where he was rescued, a short swim from Castle Rock National Wildlife Refuge. In late January, before his release, Mork is the lone patient in the center’s nine pens. The center’s gift shop is closed. The whole place is quiet and dark as Wood enters and disables an alarm. A broken X-ray machine — too old to be repaired — is pushed against a wall in the examination room. A room with a wall of cages for baby seals is empty for now. In the coming months, the cages will be filled with rescued seal pups — whether or not the center can afford to care for the animals. Last year, the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center didn’t receive federal funds to cover operating expenses and the salary of its sole paid employee, executive director Robyn Walker, who moved from Canada in March 2012 to take the job. Each year, the center applies for up to $100,000 in federal funding through the John
H. Prescott Marine Mammal Rescue Assistance Grant Program. The grant is a competitive one, available to rescue organizations and research projects. The center received funds two years ago to upgrade its facility, raising walls between pens to deter cross-contamination and to increase the visual security of the animals. With no funds awarded last year, the center could no longer pay Walker. She worked through December and is now volunteering, intermittently, while looking for work. Walker has a master’s degree in coastal environmental management from Duke University. In her short time at the center, she gained hands-on experience with a variety of animals and was part of the team, with Wood, that disentangled a California grey whale in Humboldt Bay in May. She says she doesn’t regret moving here for the job. “It was a great experience,” she said. “I wouldn’t trade it.” Operating on a shoestring budget is nothing new, Wood says. The seal saviors of Humboldt and Del Norte counties have been helping marine animals since 1984, when folks reported stranded seals and sea lions to Ocean World Aquarium. As the aquarium’s vet, Wood assisted with rescues, stabilizing animals to be transported seven or eight hours to the closest marine mammal center in Marin County. In 1989, oil spill mitigation funds made possible the construction of the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center, with a medical treatment room, a harbor seal pup room, kitchen for food preparation and outdoor pens. Wood still donates his time and veterinarian skills. Volunteers from as far south as Garberville and north to the Oregon border investigate reports of stranded animals on beaches. Volunteers put up signs on beaches, monitor animals and help tote hefty marine mammals up steep paths out of, say, College Cove in Trinidad. Volunteers feed seal pups, scrub pens and work in the gift shop. Stranding coordinator Lynda Stockton, also a volunteer, answers the area’s marine mammal hotline 24-7. “We put in our own time and sweat and sometimes our own money,” Stockton says. Rescues can be expensive. Feeding a baby seal for a couple of months can add up to hundreds of dollars. Harbor seal pupping season runs from mid-February through June. During this time, female harbor seals give birth to 10- to 15-pound pups, soft and round, with spotted fur. While mom goes out to fish, the babies are left alone on the beach. “They’re adorable,” Stockton says. “People want to pick them up, and that’s the last thing you should do.” If people think an animal’s in danger, they
shouldn’t try to intervene, she says. Instead, call the marine mammal stranding hotline, (707) 951-4722. Stay at least 100 yards away — that’s the law — and keep your pets on leashes. “Everybody wants to go right up and look at the seals,” Wood says. “They look like stuffed animals. They even make cute noises.” Wood is a veterinarian at All Creatures Animal Hospital in Crescent City. When he’s not caring for household pets — or the occasional injured wild creature dropped off in a bucket or garbage can — he’s examining seals, patching up wounds and planning rehab regimens. He’s also an authorized whale disentanglement specialist, and points out trophies — bits of ropes and buoys removed from the grey whale incident in May — that now adorn the center’s hallway. In an office, framed photos depict “graduating classes” of rescued marine mammals. During pupping season, the center will rescue, rehabilitate and release up to 30 harbor seal pups. That number should be four or five per year, Wood says. The villains? Dogs and human intervention. Dogs can quickly and easily injure seal pups. Even a peaceful dog-seal encounter might result in a seal pup being abandoned by a self-preserving mother. Also, humans might intervene — with the best of intentions — when they decide a baby seal needs help. Some people pick the seals up. Some try to transport the seals to the center. Not a good idea, Wood says, because they might hurt themselves, hurt the pup or separate it from its mother. “Would I ever presume to pick up an animal when I know nothing about it?” Wood asks. “No. But people do.” The result? A seal pup facing weeks or months of expensive feeding and rehab. Seal pups are fed wildlife milk formula supplemented with salmon oil. As soon as they are big enough, they’re fed high-calorie herring. The idea is to get some weight on them as quickly as possible. The work keeps the all-volunteer team busy through July. The food’s not cheap. As director, Walker promoted an Adopt-a-Seal program that asked donors to give $10 to feed a seal for one day. She also recruited volunteers. An online application is available at the center’s website, www.northcoastmmc. org. New volunteers can help out in any location — doing pretty much anything, she says. Training’s provided. Center volunteers say that limited funds won’t keep them from their mission. Stranded marine mammals in Humboldt and Del Norte will continue to be rescued. “Without the grant, it’s really tight,” Stockton says. “We’re not sure how we’re going to cover this season. But we will. We really care about the animals.” l

Dirty dryer vents are a leading cause of household fires Call now to have yours cleaned
Let’s assume you are familiar with the overnight hatchet-wielding memesation known as Kai the Homefree Hitchhiker, who earlier this week smash, smash, suhmashed his way into America’s idol-craving hearts. But why does this matter to you, Humboldtian? Well, as the Lost Coast Outpost noted earlier today, Kai’s personal Facebook page lists “Eureka, Calif.” as the place Kai “lives in.” So feel free to claim him as your hometown hero. His Facebook page even has a picure of him on the Arcata Plaza. Seeing Kai on the Plaza triggered something in my brain: I’ve totally run into this guy before. So I went back through my photos and, sure enough, found our hero in a series of shots I’d taken for the Journal’s “End of the World” Issue back in December. Kai kept quiet on his thoughts on Armageddon that day. Perhaps he knew better. Congrats on the fame, Kai. And if you do end up, as rumored, on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the near future, remind him that he owes us a visit. Update: Kai takes a ride with Jimmy Kimmel, and Kimmel lets Kai philosophize.

The “Fair Wage Folks,” a local committee working to raise the minimum wage in Eureka to $12 an hour submitted petitions yesterday with signatures of about 2,700 voters. If enough pass muster, the Eureka Fair Wage Act could be on the ballot in June. “We look forward to about 1,400 of Eureka’s workers getting a raise,” said James Decker, one of the Fair Wage Folks, citing wage statistics from the latest census. “If
we make the spring ballot, that will happen in July 2013.” City Clerk Pam Powell will check the validity of the signatures. The minimum for consideration is 1,370, 10 percent of those who voted in the 2011 election; 15 percent speeds up the process. If the petitions meet either threshold, the clerk will present the ordinance to the city council. The council could pass it as written or opt to put it to a vote for the electorate. “We think it will go to a vote of the people, but anything is possible,” said Decker, noting that, in July 2012, the minimum wage increase was submitted to the city council and they voted against implementation. He sees a reversal as unlikely. If 2,055 signatures are valid, the matter must be put to a vote within 103 days, in the June election. If between 1,370 and 2,055 signatures are valid, the ordinance will be on the November 2014 ballot. The Eureka Fair Wage Act is modeled on a similar ordinance passed by voters in San Jose last November. San Jose’s Measure D raised the minimum wage to $10 an hour within the city. California’s minimum wage is $8 an hour; the federal minimum is $7.25. While San Jose’s ordinance is across the board — for all employers — the Eureka version would exempt businesses with fewer than 25 employees — “the mom and pops in Old Town” for example, said Decker. ● EDUCATION, INDIAN COUNTRY, YUROK / BY HEIDI WALTERS / FEB. 7, NOON

DANCE / BY STEPHANIE SILVIA / FEB. 7, 11:27 A.M.
Hubbard Street Dance The members of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago inhabited choreographer Ohad Naharin’s emotive landscape earnestly and cleanly in their performance Feb. 5 at HSU’s Van Duzer Theater. Naharin, artistic director of Israel’s lush Batsheva Dance Company, reworked sections from earlier works, Three and Max, into the intricate piece Three to Max for Hubbard Street. Brilliantly accumulating movements ... the dancers captivated. As stunning as they were, the performance left an ache to know how Naharin’s own Batsheba Dance Company would perform his work. Sharon Eyal, choreographer for the second act of Tuesday’s program, is a former Batsheba company member who danced under Naharin for years. Some of the older master’s imprint is seen in how she scatters groups about the stage and sets quirky solos against a living backdrop. Eyal has stretched Naharin’s contrast of the classical against the pedestrian by adding rock, bluesy and house-party music. Eyal’s corp in Too Beaucoup was like a chorus line on acid, with women in platinum wigs, Dutch-girl style, men in spiky cuts, and all in nude unitards. The dancers were intensely focused, the choreography relentlessly attentive to the beat. Yet where Naharin kept me enthralled, Eyal lost me at times with too much repetition. ● AGRICULTURE, ENVIRONMENT, FISHERIES / BY RYAN BURNS / FEB. 6, 5:02 P.M.

dams on the Klamath River. The upshot? It’s a good idea. As AP reporter Jeff Barnard explains, federal scientists believe the $1 billion dam-removal project would restore the ecosystem, improve commercial fishing harvests and boost regional farm revenues: “Overall, the benefits far outweigh the costs, by as much as 47.6 to one, the report found.” Today, the San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board called out an “Amen!,” encouraging Congress to “heed science over politics” and tear those suckers down. Oregon and California support dam removal, as does PacifiCorp, the company that owns the dams, along with a broad coalition of enviros, tribal leaders, fishermen and ranchers. A deal authorizing removal of the dams got hung up last year in the foul, fetid waters of Congress. “There are no other sensible options,” the Chron editorial states.
the most successful in the state.” The story notes there are about 300 basic Yurok speakers now, 17 of whom are fluent. Eureka High’s plan, it says, goes beyond mere language learning: “… the teacher and tribe have some longer-term goals: boosting Native American high school graduation rates and college admissions numbers; deepening the Yurok youths’ bonds to their culture; and ensuring that their language will regain prominence after half a century of virtual silence.”
Vincent van Gone! OK, it wasn’t by Vincent van Gogh, it was of van Gogh. But lame either way. Press release from the Eureka Police Department: On 2/5/13 EPD took a report of a stolen 2’ x 2’ oil painting on panel of Vincent van Gogh. It was painted in his impressionistic style by local artist Rachel Schlueter. It was stolen on February 5, 2013 between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. from the C Street Studios (Second and C Streets) from the wall of the upstairs gallery area.

By the Breach Creatures thrive in the shifting world of Stone Lagoon By Heidi Walters
ven from the car, skimming fast south on Highway 101 in late December as the dusk sky streaked orange, you could tell something was different about Stone Lagoon, shimmering there behind a flickering screen of trees. It was breached! The smooth, silvery oval surface had grown a narrow, turbulent funnel that cut through the sand spit. The lagoon rivered through; the ocean pushed in. This was exciting. Stone Lagoon doesn’t breach every year. Unlike Big Lagoon, the larger body to the south which might breach as much as seven times in a year, Stone might open one year then go several more without breaching. On New Year’s day, a small group of breach seekers walked roughly four miles from Dry Lagoon north to Stone Lagoon. They followed the pretty sandspit between marshy Dry and the steep-beached ocean, then ascended into the hilly peninsula between the two once-joined lagoons. The trail, muddy and grassy in turns, passed through shady spruce stands, white-green corridors of huge, lichened alder, cedars, redwoods, salal, salmon berry, thimbleberry. Ferns everywhere. Rashes of mushrooms clustered on mossy tree roots. Scaffoldings of thick
fungus plates rising up trunks. A pileated woodpecker knocked scarlet head into gray snag, chunking out square holes. In late summer and fall, the place would be thick with berries and bears. The group traversed down the slippery north side and emerged onto a slaty dark shore. It widened, changing to coarse pebbles and quartz chunks that grew finergrained as they walked westward. Marshy grass and dune mat spread south toward the peninsula. Recently exposed beach expanded to the new waterline, plastered occasionally by small white bivalve shells. Finally, the breach. They stood on a sturdy shelf of sand far back from the rupture. Below, smooth sand, crowded with gulls, fanned to the channel where the ocean pushed in. What was coming in with it? What was going out? What happened as the lagoon level dropped? And when it closed back up, what then? Also (just asking), could you grab a shovel or apply a heavy boot and, you know, dig the thing open if you felt so inclined — and should you? The answer to those last questions, to be agate-eyed clear, is yes you could (and people have) and no, you definitely shouldn’t — for many reasons, including that you could be sucked in and spit out into the tumbling cold ocean. Coastal lagoons are common (in the United States, there are far more on the Atlantic coast than the Pacific). But the four in Humboldt Lagoons State Park —

This particular fold-and-thrust belt is a unique structure. “We’re probably one of the only places where this fold-and-thrust belt is on land,” he said. “Usually it’s off shore.” What’s happening is the Pacific plate, south of us, is shoving northwestward against the North American plate (at the San Andreas Fault), pushing the southern end of the Cascadia subduction zone landward. It comes closest to shore near Humboldt. The spits closing off the lagoons are formed by ocean-borne sediments. As Humboldt State Professor Jeff Borgeld, a marine geologist who studies near-shore sediments, explains it, sediments flow out of the rivers and creeks, get transported by longshore currents and deposited by waves in a zig-zag fashion up and down the coast. The Eel River, Borgeld said, supplies 90 percent of the sediment shoring up the beaches and spits between False Cape and Moonstone Beach, with some more added by the Mad River. The Klamath River and Redwood Creek supply most of the sediment building the beaches and lagoon spits north of Big Lagoon.
Most of the time,
the lagoon is quiet. Wild quiet, that is. Sure, there’s Highway 101 over there, on the east shore. A small visitor’s center nearby (closed now), a boat launch and a cabin where a state park ranger sometimes lives. There’s also the little boat-in campground on the west shore, six spots nestled in a leafy bower of alder, willows and spruce. It, too, is closed these days — the state’s broke. But when it was open, you could row over with a batch of friends and, as the sun sank and the mist took over, it felt like you’d been flung into a remote past. The difficult access filtered out the bozos who’d bring stereos. And though you could still hear trucks on the highway, a mile away, their moaning on the down-
grades just sounded like ghostly harbingers of a distant future. There’ll be no other boats on the water, usually. At least, not when Ken Bechtol comes out here. Even on a weekend. Bechtol’s been coming to Stone Lagoon, on average, once a week for the past 10 years — twice a week most months, less often in the winter. He’ll bring a sailboat, sometimes, but more often one of the rowboats he built. Maybe the little white dory skiff, or perhaps one of the Whitehalls — elegant, 12- to 14-foot numbers patterned after the livery boats that used to ply back and forth between ships, delivering people and goods, in the 19th century’s New York Harbor. Usually he’ll row from the launch to the south end of the mile-and-a-half long spit. If it has breached, he’ll swing far to the side before landing. Then he’ll walk over and watch the lagoon communicating with the ocean. Then maybe he’ll row to the middle of the lagoon and stop. He doesn’t fish. Just watches. Listens. There will be muddles of bobbing black coots. Sleek, curved cormorants. Kingfishers, treelimb-perched then suddenly diving. Ospreys scooping up fish — each orienting the catch lengthwise in clutches so that bird and fish, aligned, cut neatly through the air. The fog might roll in low, opaque. But the lagoon is narrow, cozy within steep forested hills, and Bechtol is never lost. In the winter, the whole hillside to the east will bristle gray where thickets of deciduous trees stand leafless. In the spring it’ll turn brilliant green and stay green all summer. The otters show up for a couple of months, some years. There are two families; one, a family of four, hangs around a little rock on the west shore, near the campground. They’re elusive; one might poke a sleek head out of the water to eye you from 50 yards away, then slither back under water. Sometimes harbor seals swim in, when continued on next page

continued from previous page the spit is breached. Bears often come down to the water, crossing the highway or descending from the hilly woods of the peninsula between Dry and Stone lagoons. There will be elk, when they’re not lounging on the grass by the Little Red School House nearby. Occasionally, Bechtol is popped from his reverie by gunshots: The duck hunters have arrived, in their boats (they can’t hunt on shore because it’s state park land. The waters of the lagoon, however, fall under state Fish and Wildlife jurisdiction). He might see park ranger Hall paddleboard over to check on someone’s hunting license. And once, for about 18 months, Bechtol’s solitude was frequently interupted by the exploits of a Coast Guard member, temporarily stationed at Humboldt Bay, who came to the lagoon with his performance kayak and whirred speedy laps around the bay. There will be moonlight paddlers. And regular bouts of swimmers in the summer. Every year, one particular group of swimmers — a competitive lot — will arrive, fill the parking lot with their fancy Humvees and such, and for two days challenge each other, swimming rapidly across the lagoon. Last July, Bechtol saw the Yurok jump dancers, something he’d never seen before. Nobody had, here on the lagoon anyway, in perhaps 135 years. There were at least six dugout redwood canoes. In several of them, men stood three abreast. They wore long dentalium shell necklaces and flared headresses whose broad, scarlet bands of pileated woodpecker feathers flashed against the misty gray-green landscape. The women, several sitting in one boat and one sitting
in the front of another, wore traditional ceremonial dresses. One of the men showed Bechtol, the curious boatmaker, the parts of a canoe, each representing a part of the human body. Heart. Kidneys. Lungs. Nose.
It was Christmas Eve,
1985. Dan Doble and a friend were flyfishing in the south end of Stone Lagoon, and they hadn’t had any strikes in a long while. They had just cast their lines out once more and, trolling along, were talking about heading to another part of the lagoon. Then Doble had a strike. “I thought I had hooked a steelhead,” he said by phone from his home in Eureka recently. He hauled it in. It was speckled like a steelhead. But it had two bright orange stripes under its jaw. “And when we saw the stripes, both of us were aghast. Neither one of us had ever seen a cutthroat that big.” It was 21 inches long. On their way home, they weighed the fish on a grocery scale at the market in Trinidad: seven pounds. After the holiday, Doble brought his catch to the state Fish and Game (now “Wildlife”) office. It had shrunk a bit by then and weighed in officially at five pounds, 10 ounces. It was still a new state record for coastal cutthroat trout, Doble said. “The fisheries biologist, Ron Warner, he examined it and he was very excited,” Doble recalled. “He made me a deal: He’d make me a fish print in exchange for letting him keep it for research.” Doble said if he caught such a big cut-

especially good place for fish, and fish food. Fish and Game biologist Mike Berry wrote in a 1997 management plan that the roughly 500-acre Stone Lagoon (its size depends on whether it’s breached or not) supports 17 fish species, 16 of which are California natives. Many of these creatures are euryhaline, meaning they can exist over a wide range of salinity. Stone Lagoon ranges from 1 part per thousand salinity (when it hasn’t breached in awhile) to 33 parts per thousand (the ocean is 35), according to a 1996 report by Robert Markle, who was a Humboldt State graduate student at the time. Stone Lagoon also rarely goes anoxic — devoid of dissolved oxygen — Markle found. That happens when the denser salt water sinks to the bottom, along with organic matter, and a layer of fresh stays on top. As the organic matter decays it uses up the oxygen. This happens sometimes in Stone, but because it is fairly
concentrations of algae, invertebrates — including masses of polychete worms — zooplankton and little bait fish that the bigger fish gobble up. And, even when Stone Lagoon becomes almost entirely fresh water, it tends to lose its salinity so slowly that saltwater fish trapped in there have time to acclimate. “There’s an incredible list of fish that have been found there,” Taylor said. The first year Taylor sampled the lagoon, its spit had been closed for three years. It had almost no salt in it. He found brackish and saltwater fish species living just fine alongside freshwater species: sculpins (freshwater), anchovies, starry flounder, MAP OF THE LAGOONS IN HUMBOLDT LAGOONS STATE PARK.

In 1985, when Doble caught his big fish, the lagoon was especially stuffed. Fish and Game had been stocking it with hundreds of thousands of hatchery fish since at least 1940 — mostly rainbow trout and steelhead (ocean-going, or anadromous, rainbows), Chinook salmon, coastal cutthroat trout and coho salmon. The fish came from hatcheries all over Northern California. Fisherman came from all over, too. There were fishing derbies. It was a different time. But attitudes were changing. And trouble — brewing for a long time in the lagoon’s humanimpacted watershed — couldn’t be masked much longer by indiscriminate fish stocking.
Humans have been
living at Stone Lagoon for thousands of years. Yurok people called the lagoon Cha-pekw ‘O Ket’oh and lived there yearround. The Europeans arrived, cleared land, built homes, diverted McDonald Creek into a channel, and drained the already marsh-tending Dry Lagoon to raise crops and graze livestock. They even dug for gold in the lagoon’s beach sands. And they renamed it, after a farmer from Massachusetts, William Stone. There were still lots of fish. From 1903 to 1904, Eleanor Ethel Tracy, a 23-year-old from Eureka, taught at the Stone Lagoon School. Her letters home were compiled in a book called Schoolma’am. On Nov. 19, 1903, she wrote that it had rained nearly two weeks straight after a long dry summer, and the salmon were running up the overflowing creeks. Her boy students fished on their breaks. “The fish don’t bite very well,” she wrote, “but today they had pitchforks, and so managed to land four fine, large ones.” After World War II, things got worse, as large-scale logging of old growth redwood commenced, said Don Allen, who’s director of the Redwood Community Action Agency’s natural resources division. He was just a field specialist back in 1983 when RCAA began the first major restoration projects on McDonald Creek. “The whole watershed was tractor logged in the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s,” Allen said. “The disturbance was pretty intense. Old aerial photos show that there were skid tractor trails everywhere — straight up the creek channels, straight up the slopes.” The already unstable land — uplifted ancient marine terraces, including the infamous Franciscan Complex “blue goo” — got that much more slip-slidey. Massive volumes of sediment — especially after continued on next page

big storms blew out badly constructed roads and creek crossings — washed downstream, messing up creek spawning beds and filling in part of the lagoon. Other private landowners logged, built ponds, planted nonnative fish and grazed cattle along McDonald Creek and its north fork. There was even a private quarry, with a poorly built road, that supplied Caltrans with shale, Allen said. In the 1980s and ’90s, suddenly everybody was flocking to Stone Lagoon to try to fix it: California State Parks, which had been slowly buying up lagoon lands since 1931, state Fish and Game, landowners, RCAA, fishermen, university professors and their students, and more. RCAA planted trees along the cow-denuded lower creek lands and built fences to keep the cattle away. The Stone Lagoon Action Committee formed. Its members fixed bad creek crossings, recreated spawning habitat, and got non-native fish out of manmade ponds. They studied fish habits, lagoon salinity and other phenomena. And they tried to boost the population of coastal cutthroat. The species had declined in some areas of its range (which is from the Eel River in Humboldt County to the southern coast of Alaska). Before the stocking, it had probably dominated Stone Lagoon, said Terry Roelofs, a retired Humboldt State fisheries professor who, with graduate students, conducted studies there. Maybe the species could make a comeback there. That turned out to be tricky, even after Fish and Game stopped stocking non-local fish. It turned out that cutthroat were breeding with steelhead and producing hybrids. That rendered the first breeding attempts — in hatchboxes using eggs from fish in McDonald Creek — untrustworthy. The second attempt — hatchery raising pure-strain, wild cutthroat using eggs collected in uncompromised nearby watersheds — yielded mixed results.
The tens of thousands of introduced cutthroat thrived in the food-rich lagoon. “It was great fishing,” said Taylor, who was one of Roelof’s graduate students. “You could catch and release 30-50 fish a day. It was phenomenal.” But they still bred with steelhead in the creek; chances of a wild, self-sustaining cutthroat population, without hatchery help, seemed slim. Taylor thought the problem might be solved by removing some barriers in smaller tributaries in the upper watershed, where cutthroat could get away by themselves. Then, around 1994, everything stopped. A landowner balked at the finger-pointing at his troubled land and booted the restorationists off. And the tidewater goby, a tiny anadromous fish, had been listed federally as endangered. The feds worried that the introduced cutthroat might gobble the goby up. Since then, not a lot has happened fishwise at Stone Lagoon. Gilroy, the state Fish and Wildlife biologist, said limited salmonid restoration funds have been diverted largely to the state-listed endangered coho salmon in other watersheds.

cultural practices. In 1984, they restored the Jump Dance at Pek-won, along the Klamath River. In 2000, they brought the White Deerskin Dance, also a 10-day ceremony, back at Weitchpec, where the Trinity River flows into the Klamath. It is a world-renewal dance. Both it and the Jump Dance, Peters said, are connected, and used to take place every two years. They are called high dance ceremonies. “Not many other tribal nations in the world has that healing and renewing the earth as a central, philosophical approach to who they are as people,” Peters said. “We — Yurok and other groups here in Northern California — that’s why we’re put here, to heal and renew the earth. It’s our central purpose in life.”
A guy once told Don Allen
that he used to gather butter clams on a beach at Stone Lagoon. “And when the lagoon got full, he would not be able to get to his butter clams,” Allen said. So the man would take a shovel out to the spit and start the breach. “I know a guy who did that with his boot,” Allen added. Terry Roelofs said he, too, saw a guy taking a boot to Stone Lagoon’s spit. He figured the man would have been swept away if he’d succeeded. “I’ve threatened lawsuits against one of my best friends for breaching out Big Lagoon,” Roelofs said. “I was so pissed. It messed up a field trip up there at the lagoon. And he was so thrilled, so excited just to see it go! My concern was for wa-

terfowl nests in that marsh out there. And when that thing is drained for the summer, it significantly reduces the surface area of the lagoon.” Someone breached the lagoon in the summer of 1993, just after hatchery bred young cutthroat trout had been planted in the lagoon. The next winter, Roelofs said, fish traps in the creek yielded just seven cutthroat — there’d been more than 2,200 in there before the breach. The theory was that most of the planted cutthroats had gone through the breach (some were later seen in Redwood Creek). It closed, and they couldn’t get back in. Stone Lagoon won’t breach naturally in late spring or summer. The water is too

low. Both Big and Stone lagoons need the winter rains to raise their levels above the ocean. Then, lagoon water seeps through the sand, and washes over it, nibbling away. Once open, over a couple of days the lagoon level drops to sea level. Big Lagoon breaches frequently because it has two big creeks flowing into it, filling it more often. Stone Lagoon just has McDonald Creek and its small north fork. Stone’s watershed needs at least 60 inches of total rainfall in a season for the lagoon to breach, according to a breach study published in 2006 by Humboldt State student Jill Beckmann. This happens, she found, on average about two out of three years.
The irregular regime — the timing — at Stone Lagoon seems to work well for the creatures living in it. When it’s closed, the fish and other animals grow and proliferate. When it opens, small creatures might get washed out, it’s true. But big ocean fish ready to spawn can come in. It stays open until the longshore currents and waves rebuild the spit again. On Jan. 10, Ken Bechtol, the rowboater, wrote to a friend saying the breach at Stone Lagoon had closed. He was keeping an eye on it. “At a 3.5 foot tide, wave wash just carried over to the lagoon side at 5 to 10 minute intervals,” he wrote. “Water is just above previous breach level … .” l

We Americans don’t drink much cassis, and that’s a shame. This thick, rich, French liqueur, made from the fruit of the black currant bush, turns an ordinary glass of dry white wine, sparkling wine or hard cider into something wonderful. I’ve even heard tell of it being mixed with red wine, or with beer. A little dollop of it in sparkling water is not such a bad thing either. (The fine people at Clear Creek Distillery make an excellent American version of cassis if you don’t want to bother growing your own.) So why don’t we Americans grow black currants? The plant was banned in the 1920s for its role in spreading white pine blister rust. By 1966, the USDA realized that the ban was unnecessary and lifted
it. Spores of the disease can only travel a thousand feet from black currant bush to pine tree, so keeping them out of pine forests is really pretty easy. Besides, many new varieties are disease-resistant. However, the ban remains in place in 10 states on the East Coast. Agricultural scientists are working with those states to educate them about black currant and persuade them to lift the ban. So you can certainly grow them. Ask at your local garden center; if you can’t find them locally, Raintree Nursery in Oregon will ship them to you. The authentic French variety is “Noir de Bourgogne,” but it doesn’t turn up in garden centers much. “Minaj Smyriou” is self-fertile and resists blister rust. “Ben Sarek” was bred by Scottish researchers to resist frost and do well in backyards, where it reaches only 3 feet. “Hilltop Baldwin” is a popular English variety. They aren’t all self-fertile, so get at least two to ensure good pollination. To make your own cassis, take a pound of black currants, wash well, and seal in a jar with one 750 ml bottle of grappa,
grape eau-de-vie, marc or good vodka. (I’d choose Ciroc, a vodka distilled from grapes.) Mash the fruit to release the juice, and let it sit for a month, shaking or stirring the jar once a week. Then strain into a new container and add simple syrup to taste — one to two cups simple syrup should do it. (Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water, heated and allowed to cool.) Give it a couple more months, and your cassis should be ready to drink. Sloe: Also known as the blackthorn bush or by its Latin name, Prunus spinosa, this large European hedgerow plant produces the small, tart fruit used to make sloe gin. It’s hard to find in these parts, but try ForestFarm, a nursery in Oregon or Lincoln Oakes Nursery in North Dakota. Sloes can take a little light shade, but they can grow to over 12 feet tall, so give them plenty of room. And don’t expect fruit for a few years — sloes are, well, slow. The instructions for making sloe gin are pretty similar to those of cassis, except you’ll use gin. Or you can just go buy a bottle of sloe gin. Plymouth is distributing it again in the United States, and it’s a fine thing. To make a fizz, shake two ounces of sloe gin, a hearty squeeze of lemon juice, a dollop of simple syrup, and the white of one recently-laid egg in a shaker with no ice. Shake for 30 seconds, then add ice and keep shaking. Pour into a glass over ice and top with club soda. (If drinking raw eggs freaks you out, don’t do it.) Rhubarb. There is no special trick to planting rhubarb. Just give it some sunlight and plenty of compost. Choose a permanent spot, because rhubarb doesn’t like to get moved around. Space the crowns about 3 feet apart and bury them just deep enough to cover the top of the crown with a couple inches of soil. Pile a little more aged manure around the plants every spring, give it regular water, and that’s all the care it needs. Go easy the first year or two, harvesting only a few stalks. By the third year you’ll get a better harvest, but don’t ever pick more than half the stalks from a single plant. Rather than cutting the stalks, grip them firmly near the base and give them a little twist and pull. They should come out fairly easily. The tenderest stalks grow in spring and early summer; by July they can get a little tough. Remove flowering stalks to force the plant to put its energy into growing more foliage rather than setting seed. Remember that the leaves are toxic; you only want to eat the stalks. Here’s an idea of what you can do with rhubarb, and if you can’t be bothered to grow your own, try a delightful liqueur called Rhubarb Tea from Art in the Age.
A delightful twist on the classic Manhattan from Adam Chumas at Tilth in Seattle.
Ingredients and Method:
1.5 oz. rye whiskey .5 oz. rhubarb-lemon verbena simple syrup .5 oz. fresh lemon juice .5 oz. sweet (red) vermouth Shake all ingredients over ice and serve in a cocktail glass.
Rhubarb simple syrup
1 loosely-packed cup chopped rhubarb stalks 1 cup sugar 1 cup water Other fruits or herbs to taste (strawberries, lemon verbena, scented geranium, for instance) Combine all ingredients and simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the stalks are soft, press them with a muddler or wooden spoon to release the juice. Allow to cool, then strain and bottle. Keep tightly sealed in the refrigerator. Adding an ounce of vodka as a preservative will help extend the life of the simple syrup.

oes the electric banjo held by Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn look familiar? It was made here in Humboldt by Ian Davidson from Absynth Quintet, a “gypsy jamgrass” group inspired by Leftover’s groundbreaking “poly-ethnic Cajun slamgrass.” Salmon guitarist and founder Vince Herman laughed at the suggestion that his band pioneered a new sound. He pointed to Nitty Gritty Dirt Band as an earlier example of “the continuity of loud things to do with folk music.” Herman and mandolin picker Drew Emmitt have been playing amped-up string music together since 1989. Thorn came in a few years ago to replace the late, great Mark Vann. While Colorado neighbors Yonder Mountain String Band and String Cheese Incident achieved greater market penetration, Salmon pretty much invented Boulder’s jamgrass scene. “We never had a plan,” said Herman. “We were never strategically marketed, never really invested properly in the project. We never hired the right light show or the right bands to open for us. We’re just a bunch of bozos doing our thing. And luckily, after all these years, we’re still allowed to keep doing it. We’re pretty psyched about it.” The key, says Herman, is making music that makes people want to get together. “You know, I’ll volunteer to be the loud guy if it helps everybody ride the same wave,” he said. “Creating the group mind
is really cool. We humans just want to do things together; we want to join. We’re here to provide a train to ride, for everybody to jump on. And to do that, you have to make it a time that will not be recreated. Something out of the ordinary.” One way to do that is through improvisation. Some object to the term, but Herman doesn’t mind if you call Leftover Salmon a jamband. “That’s because I know what ‘jamband’ means,” he says. What does it mean? “It means that people with hair will be there,” he concludes with a laugh. Got hair? Leftover Salmon and Absynth Quintet are playing at Arcata Theatre Lounge Sunday night. Get on board. So, Thursday is Valentine’s Day and you’re wondering where to go on a date. You have options. Just figure out what kind of music your Valentine likes. Let’s say your loved one is into string band music and/or newgrass. Well, The Bee Eaters are at the Arcata Playhouse VDay for night-one of a two-night run. The band’s roots are in the new acoustic “newgrass” of formerly local fiddlers Tashina and Tristan Clarridge (with Tristan switching to cello) — but what makes it unusual is Simon Chrisman’s hammered dulcimer laying down flurries of notes. Elements of bluegrass, jazz and Celtic weave into Texas fiddle tunes (the Clarridges are certified champions), creating a unique, organic whole. “We grew up listening to the sounds of nature, rather than the sounds
of cities,” says Tristan, and perhaps that explains it. San Francisco-based rockers The Stone Foxes are at the Jambalaya for V-Day. The four-piece plays music you might call a post-classic rock — mostly original tunes but based on the rootsy-bluesy sound of the Stones, Zep, Credence, etc. The Foxes just released its third album, Small Fires; pick up at a copy at the merch table. They share the bill with The Trouble, who somehow sound better and better every time I hear them. Great songs, great players, a truly fine band. The Lorenza Simmons Trio plays jazzy love songs at Robert Goodman Wines with Lorenza on vocals backed by the versatile Tim Randles on keys and Bobby Amirkhan on bass. Is your date into EDM (as in electronic dance music)? “I Hate Valentines Day!” at the Red Fox Tavern has GRAssHOppA, OnHell and DJ Trey playing dance music heavy on the bass end. “Another Awkward Valentine’s” at the Arcata Theatre Lounge is Ba-Dum-CHH Comedy‘s take on VD with William Head up from S.F. to join the B-D-C crew: Joe Deschaine, Kimberly Hodges, Ratty Maty, John McClurg, Tony Persico, Ivy Vasquez and your hostess with the mostess Sherae O’Shaughnessy. Special guests Kyle and The MacLachlans provide some sort of musical interlude. The troupe invites you to “share your VD with us,” which sounds kinda dangerous. Pressure/Anya spins vinyl for an ’80s Valentine’s Day Dance Party in the Eureka Inn’s Palm Lounge with the Humboldt Pinups calendar girls signing autographs. (As usual Pressure Anya is rocking multiple parties this week: Saturday at the Pearl, the duo spins “world wide beats” with guest belly dancers; Taco Tuesday at the Jambalaya is equally worldly; then Anya goes solo for Whomp Whomp Wednesday at Nocturnum, opening for a female electro-duo from S.F. with Lotus Drops and Skulltrane, aka SkullDrops.) The day after VD, Friday, In Human Creation presents My Bloodiest Valentine, “a satirical look at a classic holiday,” at The Jambalaya with music by Tellum, Twist of the Python and Fuck You (Sex Ghost), dancing by Megz, Lex and friends plus thematic games and prizes. It comes with a warning: “This show will contain images of a bloody nature. Viewer discretion is advised.” The British electronic artist known as Ott grew up listening to dub by Scientist and King Tubby alongside proto-electro bands like Neu! and Kraftwerk. The inspiration led to work as an engineer in London helping craft soundscapes by The Orb and On-U-Sound bands like African Head
Charge, and working with masters such as Brian Eno. Ott ultimately created his own psychedelic dub style, first collaborating with Simon Posford of Shpongle and Hallucinogen, then, starting 10 years ago, releasing his own solo records. His latest tour as Ott and The All Seeing I finds him backed by guitar (Naked Nick), bass (Chris Barker) and drums (Matt White). He says shifting to playing with a band was an obvious choice. “People like going out to see bands. It’s a way to amplify the fun. It’s fun on your own but much more fun with a gang of your mates.” How much fun? See for yourself when Ott and company play at the Arcata Theatre Lounge Saturday night. Philly-based producer KiloWatts opens. Jamaican reggae/dancehall singer Gyptian is among the few who have managed to cross over to the American hip hop/ urban market. The key was his song “Hold Yuh,” which was remixed with added vocals by hot rapper (and American Idol host) Nicki Minaj. Gyptian hits the Arcata Theatre Lounge Friday with a full band (sorry, no Nicki). Second Nature Sound and Rude Lion provide local support. More reggae? The One-Love Jam Saturday at the Angelina Inn has Stevie Culture headlining with C-Baker, Judrum, Aminata, Mykal Somers, Marcio, Professor Funk and Madi Simmons. It’s cold out, which makes it time for another Winterfest, Humboldt’s only wintertime beer-tasting festival, once again held at the Arcata Community Center, Saturday evening. As usual they’ll be pouring a whole bunch of different microbrews. Music comes from Chris Parreira, Speakeasy Saints and, breaking a long all-local Winterfest tradition, an import: a neo-psychedelic rock band from Santa Cruz, Grandpa’s Chili. The afterparty at Humboldt Brews has electro-funk by a reunited Moo-Got-2; free admission with a Winterfest wristband. KMUD/KMUE Community Radio has a pair of benefits at Portuguese Hall in Arcata Saturday. First, it’s an afternoon wine tasting party (3-6 p.m.) with samples from our fine local vintners, an auction, and music by the Meadowood String Quartet. After sundown it’s time for the MUD Fling with an eclectic collection of local bands: the funky River Valley Mud, Kenny Ray and The Mighty Rovers playing country swing (Kenny is a KMUD deejay), bluegrass-ish tunes by The No Good Redwood Ramblers, jammy rock by Liquid Kactus and Brazilian-style rhythms and dancing by SambAmore. Proceeds from both parties go to help pay for a signal upgrade for KMUD’s NoHum branch, KMUE. Good cause. Good music. Good times. ●

240 F ST. EUREKA (707) 497-6294
“Surely mankind’s greatest invention is the sentence,” asserts Irish writer John Banville, and he’ll get no argument from me. For writers trying to orchestrate the elements of a novel, story, screenplay, report, memoir or other form, it’s good advice as well as good practice to remember the prime importance of the first construction: the sentence. In this best-selling, self-proclaimed “how to,” Stanley Fish repeats the question that every would-be writer must answer affirmatively: Do you like sentences? Fish claims that he loves sentences, and offers some of his favorites. And that’s when my smile starts to turn upside down. His examples of great sentences are largely mediocre (one of the authors is Justice A. Scalia) and his own sentences are often awkward. (He could also use a little help with his paragraphs.) But Scalia is a clue. Fish (the back cover bio says) is a professor of law, as well as an author and columnist. Like a lawyer he begins by making an adversarial case, going after his most famous competitor, Strunk and White’s classic The Elements of Style. They take for granted their readers know how to write sentences, he asserts, so they don’t deal with how to write a good one. While it’s true that Strunk emphasizes paragraph construction, he (and especially White) actually do say a great deal about the elements of good sentences — and they say it more clearly and succinctly than Fish does. Their “rules” are still valid, and still needed. Fish claims to go “deeper” into sentence structure, and while some of his observations are valid and cogent, most seem abstruse and unhelpful. I’m not sure why anyone would want to write many kinds of sentences he so painfully deconstructs, especially those that seem to be little more than delivery systems for rhetoric. They might be helpful for decorating a legal opinion, or a final argument in a trial. This is very academic and theoretical for a “how to” book, and yet it is also enigmatic in content and presentation. Fish emphasizes structure but undervalues the importance of the right words, their spontaneous play and music. Read the first few pages of a novel by Jim Harrison, Richard Powers, our own Jim Dodge (for example), for strong sentences that sing and still do good work. Good sentences are elegant ecosystems, but they don’t live in isolation — they are part of larger ecosystems, of paragraphs and beyond. Part of their work is to urge the reader on, to explore further, to take the next step, into the next sentence. While almost any book on writing can be of value to somebody, I would advise caution with this one, even if it is a best-seller. —William Kowinski

17 sunday EVENTS
In contrast to Valentine’s Day, a great day for greeting cards manufacturers and chocolate makers for sure, we have V-Day. Started in 1998 by a group of women including The Vagina Monologues playwright Eve Ensler, the now worldwide organization/movement looks to raise awareness and ultimately end sexualized violence against women and girls. Locally for the last several years the movement has been stewarded by VDay Humboldt. But more than a day, we are smack dab in the middle of V-Week, manifested with multiple countywide events. We’ll try to catch you up on what’s left: The Vagina Monologues: Since its debut in 1994, Eve Ensler’s play — based on her interviews with hundreds of women — has allowed thousands of women a unique venue to celebrate their sexuality and strength. This year there will be three local performances at the Eureka Veteran’s Memorial Hall. The first takes place on the traditional Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, at 8 p.m. Then, on Saturday, Feb. 16, there will be a pair of performances, one at 2 p.m. and another at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12. One Billion Rising: On Friday, Feb. 15, starting at 7 p.m., V-Day Humboldt hosts a benefit dance for Humboldt Domestic Violence Services and the North Coast Rape Crisis Team at the Eureka Women’s Club. The night features food and drink, plus short film screenings, but mostly dancing with sounds provided by DJ Goldy Locks. Tickets are $5. V-Day Flash Mob: Mobs rule. On Thursday, Feb. 14, a crowd will gather on the Arcata Plaza at 2:14 p.m. — and at sites around the world — to show solidarity with the V-Day message and the effort to end violence against women. For more info on V-Day Humboldt, check out vdayhumboldt.org. — Andrew Goff

Get Some Well, HumCo., the bad news is that the calendar gods have screwed you over again: Valentine’s Day is one of a string of recent holidays that refuses to conveniently fall on a weekend. The good news is there is still plenty of out-and-about foreforeplay to be had. Make a reservation if necessary and get your love on. Here are some tips: Take in some art: Show your valentine how cultured you are by taking her to HSU’s Reese Bullen Gallery for its Collaborate, Create, Communicate exhibit featuring photography, sculpture and paintings based on the holiday appropriate themes of acceptance, diversity and tolerance. An opening reception takes place from 4-6 p.m. Take in some cinema: A dose of Swayze is a good aphrodisiac for every couple, right? Luckily for your night, the Eureka Theatre is graciously hosting a screening of the — are we calling this thing a classic at this point, or what? — film Dirty Dancing starting at 7:30 p.m. ($10 couple/$7 single.) Take in some theater: Redwood Curtain Theatre will tug at your heartstrings with its first preview performance of its latest production The Pitman Painters at 8 p.m. The show tells the story of a group of British miners who learn to express themselves with canvas and paintbrush. Totally romantic! ($10.) Take in some dance: SoHum’s Feet First Dancers and Bada Bling! Burlesque will attempt to transport you and your lover into the outer cosmos of love during their V-Day performance, Dance Me to The Moon. The show at the Mateel Community Center features the local feetsmiths’ takes on jazz, modern, swing, ragtime and even some aerial feats. Starts at 8 p.m. ($20/$10 balcony.) Take in some sound: If mood music to you means listening to Grand National Fiddle Champions, look no further than the Arcata Playhouse, which is hosting The Bee Eaters featuring Trinity County-raised sibling fiddlers Tristan and Tashina Clarridge. The musical lovemaking starts at 8 p.m. ($20/$17 adv.) Take in some offense: Or, finally, maybe you got set up on a date with someone you’d rather not take out again. If they’re that lame, surely you can offend them away at Ba-Dum-CHH Comedy’s Arcata Theatre Lounge V-Day shindig Another Awkward Valentine’s, starting at 8 p.m. The night will be classed up by out-of-towner and headliner William Head.

Rooney Mara executes a textbook Depressive Couch Slouch in Side Effects.
At the end of his career, the versatile director delivers a bravura thriller By John J. Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org
SIDE EFFECTS. Steven Soderbergh seems intent on retirement. He has said this will be his penultimate movie (there’s Behind the Candelabra, a Liberace biopic, in the works for HBO). Pity; lately he’s been traversing eccentricity and accessibility with aplomb, producing some of the best work of his almost inestimable career. For some reason his last three films (some of my favorites) have been released among the dross and chaff of late winter. The enormous success of the Ocean‘s trilogy bought him time and distance to indulge his penchant for oddball projects, but apparently not the large-scale marketing said oddballs deserve. Magic Mike was easily one of last year’s best, at once a cutting commentary on contemporary economics and a sort of underdog sports/ performance drama. Haywire played immensely entertaining games with the “spy come in from the cold” genre of the 1960s. Both came and went with distressingly little fanfare. Now Soderbergh has made a compact, tricky noir thriller that also hap-
pens to snarkily take on big pharma. Side Effects engrosses from the outset, and blossoms as it progresses with Hitchcockian scope and convolution. Saying much about the plot could easily spoil it. This can safely be said: Martin Taylor (Channing Tatum) is released from prison after serving four years on an insider trading conviction. His wife Emily (Rooney Mara), though glad to have him back, wallows in depression and laments the loss of their formerly luxurious lifestyle. A self-destructive incident lands her in the care of a Dr. Jonathan Banks (Jude Law), a Manhattan headshrinker with a decidedly upscale clientele and attendant monthly nut. He prescribes her a variety of anti-depressants to little effect. After a drug company taps him to participate in the development phase of a new drug, he signs Emily up as a case study. Shortly after she starts taking the medicine, the lives of everyone involved are permanently, tragically altered. And that’s just the first half. In the early going, it’s easy to peg Side Effects as a socio-political screed, an agenda movie
about emotional isolation and a culture’s over-reliance on prescription drugs. But after the turning point I’ve alluded to, it becomes clear that Soderbergh and writer Scott Z. Burns (they formerly collaborated on Contagion in 2011 and The Informant! in 2009) have other ideas. The good Dr. Banks’ delicate ivory tower starts swaying, due in no small part to the influence of his colleague Dr. Victoria Siebert (Catherine Zeta-Jones), and some troubling information from his past. Things that once seemed honest and clear are quickly obfuscated, and we find ourselves in the thick of a classic whodunit. As in most of his late-period movies, Soderbergh’s visual style here is distinctive, but unobtrusive. His cinematography varies attractively from chilly, wet New York exteriors to the warm-honey ambience of tony apartments. He moves the camera and frames compositions in clever, original ways but knows when to hold a medium shot or a close-up and let his actors do their work with the script. And they do universally smart, compelling things with it. Mara’s performance in particular takes challenging, unexpected turns, and she makes the most of every one. She is utterly believable — vulnerable one moment, terrible the next. Law does laudable work here as well, giving plausible, nuanced life to Banks’ gradual transition from cocksure to broken and obsessed. The technical prowess of Soderbergh and his crew make this a rather deceptive enterprise. The plot is so twisty, the performances and artistic execution so unified, that it becomes all too easy to watch Side Effects as a fun, idle entertainment. But it is much more than that: It is the work of a popular artist who has truly hit his stride, who can produce art movies that feel like potboilers, think-pieces that play like blockbusters. I can’t get enough, and I’m gonna miss him when he’s done. R. 106m. IDENTITY THIEF. Absent Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) and Jason Bateman, there wouldn’t be much reason to even bring this up. But because she has perfect comic timing, and he’s a straight man for the ages, it kind of works. Bateman plays a buttoned-down family man and mid-level functionary at a giant financial company. He’s cash-strapped and underappreciated. When some coworkers offer him a new lease on his professional life, he seizes the opportunity. McCarthy’s loathsome grifter throws a wrench in the works when she steals his identity and casts doubt on the content of his character. Some implausible police work leads him to track her down and attempt to bring her to justice. A bounty hunter and some criminal henchpeople get involved, too. This basically serves to set in motion a run-of-the-mill road comedy that,
sadly, yields very little local color or other original touches. The two leads share a few funny scenes, and Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family), John Cho (Harold of Harold and Kumar) and rapper T.I. sneak in entertaining cameos. Despite its shortcomings, I liked Identity Thief for a couple of reasons: First, mainstream comedies with any real humor are too rare these days and this one delivers some real laughs; second, it continues the directing career of Seth Gordon, whose 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters used humor and heart to make the nerdiest of subjects (arcade gamers) accessible and entertaining. So far, his narrative features haven’t produced an equal to that great effort. But at least he’s getting a shot at it. R. 111m. —John Bennett
A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD. Not sure why the latest installment of Bruce Willis’ Die Hard franchise is considered a date movie, but the release is timed for Valentine’s Day. Ex-cop/bad guy-nemesis John McClane (Willis) travels to Russia to help his estranged assassin son, Jack (Jai Courtney). Gunfights, chase scenes, big explosions and father/son bonding ensue. Rated R. 98 m. BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. The latest teen romance/fantasy trying to capture the lucrative Twilight market stars Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan Wate, a bored teen in a southern town who falls for Lena (Alice Englert), the new girl in town, niece of the mysterious Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons). She just happens to be a witch. Will she turn to the dark side? Or can Ethan’s love make her see the light? Rated PG-13. 123 m. SAFE HAVEN. The sappy romance novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Dear John) becomes a movie directed by Lasse Hallström (My Life as a Dog, Salmon Fishing on the Yemen). Julianne Hough (from Dancing With the Stars) stars as Katie, a troubled woman who shows up in a continued on next page

City of Arcata Publically Owned Treatment Works (POTW) Pretreatment Program notice of Significant Noncompliance of Industrial Waste Pretreatment Requirements in 2012. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) General Pretreatment Regulations (40 CFR Part 403) requires the City of Arcata to annually publish a list of “Significant Industrial Users” which, during the previous calendar year, significantly violated applicable Pretreatment Standards or other Pretreatment Requirements. For the purpose of this publication, “Pretreatment Standards” are “any regulation containing pollutant discharge limits established by the USEPA, or the City of Arcata which applies to Industrial Users. This term includes prohibitive discharge limits established pursuant to Section 403.5” (Section 403.3(j)). The term “Pretreatment Requirements” means any substantive or procedural requirement related to Pretreatment, other than a National Standard, imposed on an Industrial User (Section 403.3(r)). A Significant Industrial User is in “Significant Noncompliance” if its violation meets one or more of the following criteria: (A) Chronic violations of wastewater Discharge limits, defined here as those in which 66 percent or more of all of the measurements taken for the same pollutant parameter during a 6-month period exceed (by any magnitude) a numeric Pretreatment Standard or Requirement, including instantaneous limits, as defined by 40 CFR 403.3(l); (B) Technical Review Criteria (TRC) violations, defined here as those in which 33 percent or more of all of the measurements taken for the same pollutant parameter during a 6-month period equal or exceed the product of the numeric Pretreatment Standard or Requirement including instantaneous limits, as defined by 40 CFR 403.3(l) multiplied by the applicable TRC (TRC=1.4 for BOD, TSS, fats, oil, and grease, and 1.2 for all other pollutants except pH); (C) Any other violation of a Pretreatment Standard or Requirement as defined by 40 CFR 403.3(l) that the POTW determines has caused, alone or in combination with other Discharges, Interference or Pass Through (including endangering the health of POTW personnel or the general public); (D) Any Discharge of a pollutant that has caused imminent endangerment to human health, welfare or to the environment or has resulted in the POTW’s exercise of its emergency authority under paragraph (f)(1)(iv)(B) of 40 CFR 403 to halt or prevent such discharge; (E) Failure to meet, within 90 days after the scheduled date, a compliance schedule milestone contained in
a local control mechanism or enforcement order for starting construction, completing construction, or attaining final compliance; (F) Failure to provide, within 45 days after the due date, required reports such as baseline monitoring reports, 90-day compliance reports, periodic self-monitoring reports, and reports on compliance with compliance schedules; (G) Failure to accurately report noncompliance; (H) Any other violation or group of violations, which may include a violation of Best Management Practices, which the POTW determines will adversely affect the operation or implementation of the local Pretreatment program. In 2012 the following Industrial Users were in Significant Noncompliance of applicable Pretreatment Standards: Cypress Grove Chevre was in Significant Noncompliance for discharge of Oil and Grease above Technical Review Criteria (TRC) in Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3 and Quarter 4 and for Chronic violations of wastewater discharge limits for Oil and Grease in Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3 and Quarter 4. Persons wishing to comment may do so, in writing, within 30 days following the publication date of this notice, to the following address: City of Arcata Environmental Services Department 736 F Street Arcata, CA 95521 Published date: 2/14/2013 2/14/2013 (13-48)

The Loleta Tunnel By Barry Evans
’m told that the toughest part of the annual Memorial Day weekend Kinetic Grand Championship is the Eel River Drive hill up from Hookton Road heading toward Loleta. That’s where the route crosses over Table Bluff, a 300-foot high sandstone ridge separating the Eel River valley from Humboldt Bay. If those hardy racers find the hill a challenge, they’ll be in good company, including that of the lumbermen of the 1870s and 1880s who wanted to transport logs and lumber from the Eel to Humboldt Bay’s sawmills and ship landings. Until the summer of 1884, they had two choices: Go around the ridge or over it. Around 1873, local entrepreneur Charles Heney built a five-mile mule-powered, wooden-track railroad around the western end of Table Bluff, from McNulty Slough (which flows into the Eel River estuary) to Heney’s new settlement of Southport Landing, near the present-day Wiyot Reservation. The railroad was short-lived because of a huge storm that permanently wrecked it in the winter of 1878. So much for going around the ridge. But the roads going over were terrible, as illustrated by a report in the Humboldt Times (April 15, 1876): “… surely we never before saw a highway in such deplorable condition. Great ruts and mudholes, into which the horse sank over knee deep and it is a mystery to us how the Rohnerville stages succeed in pulling through them.” A railroad would solve the mud problem, but only if the route could avoid steep grades. What was needed was a route that went through Table Bluff.
The Pacific Lumber Company owned huge tracts of redwood in the Eel valley, and its ambitions for a huge new mill at Scotia (named for the many natives of Nova Scotia who had settled there) resulted in a permanent solution to the Eel-to-Bay transportation problem. After several lumber barons — John Vance, William Carson and Captain Henry Buhne among them — joined forces in 1882 to create the Eel River and Eureka Railroad, work on a tunnel soon followed. Working day and night, crews dug from both ends to complete the one-third-mile-long tunnel by the summer of 1884. For 114 years, the tunnel was a vital conduit for countless trains bringing lumber from the Eel River basin to Fields Landing. In 1907, many local railroads were reorganized and brought under one umbrella company, the Northwestern Pacific Railroad, and today the tunnel is officially designated NWP No. 40. It’s in good shape today — it was renovated in 1960 — with tracks still running through it. If you want to check it out, start in Loleta and walk north-easterly about one mile up the NWP tracks. Boots and flashlights are recommended for the full throughthe-tunnel experience. l Barry Evans (email@example.com) thanks Mike Kellogg and the Timber Heritage Association for help with this column. THA will be running a speeder from Loleta to the tunnel entrance this coming July 14 and Oct. 12. Call 443-2957 for more information.
